    Process Development Assistance
    One of the best tools to maximize the efficiency of your lapping operation is the proper selection of a lapping plate. Engis designs and manufactures a complete range of composite lap plates for every application. Our composite lapping plates allow for efficient charging of the diamond abrasive particles and can be fine tuned either for aggressive stock removal, or for achieving fine finishes and precise flatness.

    Product Description
    Composite HY and natural metal plates are available in solid, radial, concentric, spiral and waffle grooved patterns designed to optimize your process and part characteristics.

    Special Composites vs. Natural Metals
    Special composite laps are made with a unique blend of powdered metal or ceramic, bonded with a resin system. These composite laps take a more uniform charge of diamond particles. Your benefit is more consistent and controlled performance. Composite plates are also superior in applications where lapping and polishing are combined into a single step.

    Uniform Finishing of Dissimilar Materials
    Hyprez lapping plates, when used with diamond, are ideal for finishing two or more dissimilar materials to a uniform flatness. Engis process engineers will work with you to establish the optimum combination of Hyprez plates, diamond slurries and lubricants for finishing each multi-material part.

    Plate Sizes & Patterns
    Standard sizes are as follows: 6", 9", 12", 15", 16", 18", 24", 28", 36", 42" and 48" diameters. Special sizes are available on request. Square, spiral, concentric and radial grooves, as well as custom patterns, are available.

    The most critical processing consideration when lapping with diamond is the condition of the lap plate. Generally, your results will be dependent on the condition of the plate along with your skill in establishing and maintaining flatness and diamond charge.
